In April, representatives of the groups selected in the 12th ELAS Project Competition, held with the support of the Kellog Foundation, met in Salvador (BA). The agenda included moments of reflection, motivation, exchange and coexistence through various workshops that strengthened the leaders and worked on the consequences of racism.

"The group was strengthened by this innovative way of working on racism and sexism and the impact of these two forms of oppression on the daily lives of each woman taking part," says ELAS Project Manager Cidinha da Silva, who coordinated the meeting.
The projects supported in this competition focus on organizations and groups from black women in the Northeast, especially quilombolas, that promote human rights and citizenship, improvements in socio-economic conditions, the implementation and exercise of actions that promote the fight against racial discrimination, while at the same time strengthening groups and organizations from black women in the region.
